Exceptional Items:

  • Net write-off of aircraft with airlines in Russia and no longer in the Company’s control of US$537.8 million

Commenting on the results, Firoz Tarapore, Chief Executive Officer of DAE, stated, “Our financial results for the first quarter of 2022 demonstrate the underlying strength of DAE’s franchise, and the continuing demand-led recovery of global air travel. We continue to see a trend toward air travel normalcy with all major indicators pointing toward a strong summer season ahead for our airline customers.

“We proactively addressed the loss of control of our aircraft on lease to airlines in Russia by writing off our net investment. We have filed claims of US$1.0 billion under certain insurance policies and expect to file additional claims to recover amounts due to us. Our capital adequacy and liquidity metrics remain robust.

“DAE Engineering had another strong quarter, with its Joramco business again achieving record revenue, as well as adding and renewing a number of large maintenance agreements, including with GetJet Airlines, DHL, Ryanair, and Corendon Airlines in the quarter. We look forward to continuing to expand our engineering business.”
